We are now a stocking dealer for Stillen. Anything they have we can get, give us a call.

For our 2008 GT500 we choose the Cross Drilled and Slotted rotors from Stillen.
# FOR1700XS (front) $439 Shipped
# FOR1701XS (rear) $279 Shipped
JLT GT500 PAGE

We are also installing Stillen Matrex brake pads in the rear and Mintix pads in the front. This will give big improvements in braking and greatly reduce brake dust on your wheels. These are on the site as well.
Front:
Jack up the car, set on jack stands and remove the wheels.
Remove the 2 bolts from the back of the caliper and remove.
Remove the factory rotor clip from the stud and remove the rotor.
Install your new Stillen rotor (labeled RT&LT) and reinstall the caliper. (you don't need to reuse the rotor clip)
Use a punch and tap the brake pad retaining pins out of the caliper
Simply slide the pads out and replace with the new ones.

Rear:
Remove the 2 bolts from the back of the caliper and remove.
Remove the factory rotor clip from the stud and remove the rotor.
Install your new Stillen rotor (labeled RT&LT) (you don't need to reuse the rotor clip)
To replace the pads you will simply pop them out of the caliper and reinstall the new ones in the same fasion. You may need to screw in the piston to get back on the rotor. Using a brake tool or carfully using large pliers with soft jaws, slowly screw it in clockwise adding pressure to the piston.
Reinstall caliper and wheel.

They look great. As soon as the weather permits I will do some brake tests and report back.

Thanks Stillen and Page,

Jay

Do the fronts require a special tool to push the pistons back in?

How did you spread them for the new pads?

No special tool for the front. simply use a screw driver against the piston and it wil push right it.
